DOC Defending The Guilty

Defending The GuiltyA memoir of the author that takes us behind the scenes of Britain's criminal justice system in Interesting vignette into the lives of trainee barristers who live in the basements of law firms only being called up into the light when needed for some menial task The stories of petty defences in nameless courts were interesting at the time but I've forgotten them now Alex reminded me of a politician Before they get elected for the first time they have fire in their belly they are going to change the world Then they get elected and they care only about two things how much money they can make and how to hang on to the job So it is with lawyers Its not that the truth doesn't count any its just that its irrelevant to making money and keeping the jobI have a lawyer friend a C in litigation not criminal law and he told me once that which side of the case he takes is according to who gets in through the door with a cheue first Morals nothing that's his man At the end of this book Alex's pupillage was over and real life about to begin; nothing in the book led me to think that truth will win out over money and job securityNote to the author I enjoyed your book but if you think I'm too cynical write another one after five years experience and let us all see if the tone has changed
